So will these private profit making and tax avoiding companies have to pay for any of the infrastructure that public money built?

"Google and Facebook Inc helped pay for construction of the now completed telecommunications link but U.S. regulators have blocked its use."

Sorry but facts don't always fit into your socialist world view.

Paying for it does not give them the right to use it... does it?

Use by government and for security use when using the cable network transmission can be hacked... In fact technologically they will have direct access to what ever is being transmitted.

I fear the hacking by Google and Facebook much more and will be worse than the IRS, FBI and CIA that do that anyway.

That being said... sounds more like a prearranged conspiracy... an excuse was built in in the very beginning to allow this to happen... There could be a insider job to have allowed it in the beginning. I can understand a defense contractor but communication companies with all that high technology with only their interest...? Hard toi believe.

But then corruption is at all levels and in many areas of government...

you forgot the NSA. Anyway, I don’t get that. From an audit, or framing one for a crime, what do you think google or Facebook could do to you personally, besides spam you with Barry Manilow CD offers?
